The COVID19 pandemic has caused disruption and restrictions across the world and our sponsored students in Rwanda are not exempt from this. Our students have written a letter to keep our sponsors updated with the pandemic and the affect it is having for them.
We hope that you are safe from this pandemic of COVID-19. As students sponsored by RSVP we’re well but it’s not well enough because of this pandemic of COVID-19. When the first case of COVID-19 occur in Rwanda on 14th Match 2020 there are different negative effects that has been affect us in the different situations. Normally this pandemic of COVID-19 had a drastic impacts to all Rwandan especially students.
Therefore, as students sponsored by RSVP we were also affected by this pandemic in different ways: Lockdown of schools and other activities had closed the doors which were help us to get different needs.
Lockdown of schools and other activities had closed the doors which were help us to get different needs. E.g. some students were asked about the consequences of this pandemic, most of them they answered that according to their schedule of studying had increased and this case has rejected some plans of their studies.
Rwanda has set up a program for students called e-learning, and for being accessed to this program it was big issues for those students from poor families, but as students we used to revise the notes from that platform of e-learning. But it’s not easy to Access online courses because it’s expensive.
We used to download those notes as leastest ways rather than being online as good way.As government realized to re-open schools, also we’re ready to go and complete our courses.
We thank for your support you keep on giving us. We wish all blessings from almighty God to be upon you. Be safe from this pandemic of COVID-19.
